lol - only reason i left that out was because i was in very heavy traffic during "track one" and nothing could have brought a smile to my face at that moment. Turnpike aggravations can ruin a perfectly enjoyable drive

LOL - This is a great example of how utterly unreliable memory is - or at least how unreliable MY memory is.

I just clocked it on my ipod, and that opening guitar solo is just about a minute long; it's the break after the first chorus that makes my knees weak and seems to go on forever - from 2:40 to 5:40 on the track, and at 3:50 JG hits on a melody that is as familiar to me as the sound of my own name, but I've never been able to place it ... one of you more musically-inclined people might confirm this, or tell me that I'm crazy.

The rest of it is just wonderful, too, a long and jammed out version, and the boys seem to be in no hurry to get to the next song.

i love that ujb solo as well and know exactly the melody that you are talking about. i don't think jerry is quoting anything specific, it is just very familiar because humans have been manipulating the major scale with pleasurable results for a long time and we are hard wired and conditioned to respond favorably to certain combinations of notes. it's the "jerry-has-access-to-the-pleasure-center-of-your-brain-and-he-just-found-the-joy-button" melody. works every time!

"jerry-has-access-to-the-pleasure-center-of-your-brain-and-he-just-found-the-joy-button"
